Start Your Food Drive!

When you think of Feeding Westchester, you may think of truckloads of donations, secured by major partnerships with corporations and foundations. So it may surprise you to learn that old-fashioned community food drives remain foundational to our work.

Those bags of canned food at the school or office actually provide us with much-needed essentials like peanut butter and canned tuna that would otherwise be unavailable. And this is where you come in!

Feeding Westchester would love to have you organize or participate in a food drive.

Food drives can take the form of traditional on-site events at your office, business or community location. In addition, we can help you create an online food and fund drive that allows people to conveniently give food with the ease of online shopping.

OUR MOST NEEDED ITEMS

BEANS (canned or dry)
CEREALS (whole grain)
CANNED MEAT/FISH
MILK (shelf stable)
CANNED MEALS (low sodium)
CANNED VEGETABLES (low sodium)
CANNED or DRIED FRUIT

All items should be nonperishable. PLEASE, no glass containers or pre-opened items.

When choosing items for the food drive, please look for labels which read:
* Low Sodium * No Salt Added * No Sugar Added * Unsweetened * Reduced Sodium * 100% Fruit Juice * Lite

If you have any questions regarding starting a food drive, please contact our Volunteer Coordinator Jandery DeLaCruz at JDelacruz@FeedingWestchester.Org or 914.418.5211
